A Disturbingly Creepy Not-Too-Bad Film
18 December 2007 | by KashmirgreySee all my reviews

First off, Lockout is low budget. If you don't care for low budget horror then you will probably wish to pass on this film. Personally, I believe a good low budget horror film is a true piece of work and the film makers have to work that much harder to make up for tight funding. Lockout was a surprisingly disturbingly edgy tale.

Dan (Kris Desautels) finds himself out of a job, a victim to outsourcing. For a change of pace and to soften the financial hit, he, his insecure wife Chris (Cyn Dulay), and her younger obnoxiously, self-deluded sister Roweena (Claire Davenport II) move to Dan's second home in Wisconsin. Matters turn dark when Roweena attempts to set up shop as a call girl in the rural area and is contacted to entertain a grisly fetish.

Save the constant barrage of four letter expletives reminiscent of a Rob Zombie film, acting is solid here. The film is careful and stingy with story clues. Shock and gore is viciously let loose in masterfully timed shotgun bursts that slap hard and without warning. It is a far from perfect film, but it is engaging.
